    Posted Jan 12, 2021 07:07 PM
    Happy New Year - one of Aruba's university customers has inquired about available marketing collateral to advertise the availability of AirGroup to students in dormitories. Has anyone in this group implemented AirGroup and can share experiences and/or possible promotional activities to get students to leverage this technology more actively?

    Been a while, but we created a simple web page that essentially said "Want to connect and share your devices? Get your MAC address, then register your device!". The page explained what a MAC address is and provided links on how to find it for popular devices, then had a link to the Guest side of ClearPass. Students could then self-register their devices in Guest and make the appropriate sharing choices. We named the site register.ourschool.edu so that we could easily say "just go to the register site". We promoted it through student groups and on digital signage.
